Can Mitchell Johnson become the world's No 1 bowler?

Former Australian Test bowler Glenn McGrath has tipped Mitchell Johnson to soon become the No 1 bowler in the world.

According to the Guardian, McGrath said Johnson hasn't just got into English heads; he's got into Australian heads too!

Johnson is injecting Australia's psyche with a bit of confidence and a bit of mongrel, he said.

“Dale Steyn, the current World No 1, is a quality bowler, but if Mitch keeps bowling like this it won't be long before he's up in the top two or even No 1,” he added.
